Written in 1928 by a saintly Serbian bishop in Ochrid, the ancient Orthodox city in Macedonia, this synaxarion, or calendar of the church year, contains the life of a saint or several saints for each day, followed by a brief homily by Bishop Nikolai. Here are endless treasures of lessons in sanctity, for personal or liturgical reading. We turn at random to an entry for March 30, on which St. John Climacus is commemorated-- and also a saint whose name is known only to God, but to us as ''an Uncondemning Monk'': ''This monk died joyfully because he had never in his life condemned anyone. He was lazy, careless, disinclined to prayer, but throughout his entire life he had never judged anyone. And when he lay dying he was full of joy. The brethren asked him how he could die so joyfully with all his sins, and he replied: 'I have just seen the angels, and they showed me a page with all my many sins. I said to them: The Lord said, ''Judge not, that ye be not judged.'' I have never judged anyone and I hope in the mercy of God, that He will not judge me. And the angels tore up the sheet of paper.' Hearing this, the monks wondered at it and learned from it.'' 4 volumes bound as 2, 1450 pp. 2 VOLUME SET. New. Bookseller Inventory #
